3 NBA FanDuel Value Plays for 10/19/17
One of the keys to finding success in daily fantasy basketball is uncovering potential value plays. If you're looking to roster a stud player or two, you need to consider squeezing in one of these lower-priced options into your lineup.
Let's take a look at three players who can help fill in the gaps in your lineup.
Louis Williams, SG, Los Angeles Clippers
FanDuel Price: $4,700
Projected FanDuel Points: 25.9
Projected FanDuel Value: 5.51
The Los Angeles Clippers will have a reliable scorer in their second unit thanks to newcomer Louis Williams. There will be an adjustment period for the entire Clippers team after losing Chris Paul, but Williams figures to perform his usual role as an offensive spark off the bench.
Williams is projected with the second-highest value among all players on tonight's mini slate.. The Clippers' matchup versus the Los Angeles Lakers has the highest over/under of the night at 217.5, so all signs point to ample opportunities on offense for Williams.
C.J. Miles, SF, Toronto Raptors
FanDuel Price: $4,000
Projected FanDuel Points: 18.9
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.73
C.J. Miles may or may not be coming off the bench this season, but what's for sure is his propensity as a long range weapon. The Toronto Raptors lost three of their top four three-point shooters in the offseason, so Miles should be a core source of offense this season.
Miles is projected with the third-highest value among all players at his position. The Raptors are 13-point favorites versus the Chicago Bulls, so Miles could see an uptick in playing time off the bench.
Kyle Kuzma, PF, Los Angeles Lakers
FanDuel Price: $4,800
Projected FanDuel Points: 21.2
Projected FanDuel Value: 4.42
Besides having one of the coolest names in the league, rapidly-rising rookie Kyle Kuzma will also have a big role as a versatile forward for the Lakers. Kuzma is greatly benefitted from having already established chemistry with pass-happy teammate Lonzo Ball.
According to our models, Kuzma has the ninth-highest projected value among all power forwards on tonight's slate. With Julius Randle reportedly questionable tonight, more minutes could be going Kuzma's way.
